Fun color block design with beautiful cables.
You can add your personal touch with color choices.
It will be a great gift hat with college color combination, modern color combination,….
This design also looks good with one solid color. (with different color pompom?)

It’s not slouchy, but not too tight on the top.
If you prefer a slouchier hat, you can simply repeat one more cable rounds. (total 8rounds)

The sample is knitted with Tosh Vintage. Very nice squishy feel with all over cable design. This is a nice warm hat.
